We spent 2 nights at Mama Nena and were given the warmest welcome by Matina. We were also looked after well by Diana with most gorgeous breakfast from the families own farm produce, including fruit jams, yoghurt, honey, eggs and avacado ! All presented wonderfully in the guest dining room. We had a beautiful 'room with a view' overlooking the...

I say better late than never. We just arrived from our fantastic 7 week trip, and our first stop: Crete in general, but Chania in particular enchanted us. And the most enchanting place of all was Mama Nena's. From the moment we arrived and entered the foyer, with the wonderful Diana helping us with the luggage, to the moment we...

One year ago we stayed 3 nights here and it was glorious. Marina met us in the foyer of this grand house that used to belong to her grandmother. She had tastefully incorporated elements of this throughout including a dress and suitcase on display on the first floor where we stayed. Looking through the open door to our room we...

This hotel is simply wonderful. Its location is perfect, right on the waterfront. The room I stayed in - Matina - had an unbelievable view of the water and a small balcony where we could enjoy the raki they left for us. The room was spacious and so comfortable. The hotel has been perfectly restored and is a breathtaking mix...

Amazing place designed with every detail taken into consideration. Hugely thoughtful and helpful service from Matina & Diana, especially when we realised a few hours after checking out that we had lost a phone. Fantastic location - definitely good value.

The 15th century 4-storey family house, converted to a hotel 3 years ago, is set along the waterfront in the Venetian port of the town.

It offers one double room and two two-room suites. Each room and suite has its own individual décor with an unobstructed view to the lighthouse and the sea. A fine balance between the old and the new provides maximum comfort and aesthetic appeal.
